Description: Beckett's is a small, family-run, dog-friendly coffee shop off the beaten track in lovely Skinner Street. We serve a small but ever-changing menu made from local ingredients where possible including delicious soups and 'beckanini' - which are large, soft and not gum-cloggingly dry. Our cakes are all sticky and home-made using real butter and free-range eggs (the rhubarb and custard cake is a favourite) and new this year are home-made cookies. The coffee is delicious and all Fairtrade.

Really liked this place. Has a very nice feel to it with wall to wall books (reasonably priced for sale) and inviting descriptions of the food and drink available. All the people working there were extremely friendly and the hot drinks and cakes were excellent. Our only beef was that like many places in Whitby the opening hours are a bit restricted.

Cosy atmosphere, book lined walls, attention to detail, dog friendly, homemade everything, cow shaped milk jug! Nice fresh food beautifully presented, very good quality produce including drinks. My advice.....pound the streets and beaches whatever the weather then collapse in this café for a warm up. You won't be disappointed. PS Closed on Wednesdays I think.

After reading the reviews on here for Beckett's my partner & I decided to pay a visit and we weren't disappointed!

The staff are very friendly and helpful - dogs are extremely welcome too! Whilst we were dining a couple approached a staff member to ask if they served fish & chips, unfortunatly they don't (but there are plently of places in Whitby for that!!) but he happily directed them to a dog friendly venue that would cater to their needs in a friendly way.

I have two recommendations from Beckett's menu - any of the panini's - they are HUGE and absolutely gorgeous. And, the luxury hot chocolates, which come in different flavours. They are so so bad, but ohhhhh so good!! The best hot chocolate I've ever had!!

This little coffee shop is everything you want and need, good drinks and good food. Oh and they sell books too, so you could spend the whole day with your head inside a book if you really wanted!

Six if us went to this lovely coffee shop today and were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The food was lovely, the staff were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was great. We came here with our dog for a much needed escape from the sea breeze. It was my dad's 60th and we left with a complimentary slice of cake..We're already planning on coming here again tomorrow.
